The advancement of health research outcomes would not happen without the time, education, expertise, and dedication of the local health researchers we are so proud to support.

We work with its donors to support hundreds of these world-class researchers by endowing projects, training leaders in health research, building partnerships, and funding new discoveries. We are helping researchers impact health outcomes here in the Maritimes, and all over the world.

With that in mind, we welcome researchers at Dalhousie to review our competition schedule and apply for any grant they deem applicable to their research project.
